Creek Sailing talk at the Cruising Association HQ

It was a delight to share some of the joys creek sailing at, what can be described as a font of knowledge on the subject of boat cruising, Cruising Association House in London. The library alone holds over 10,000 books and charts dealing with the matter (cruising book heaven), and the CA now have over 6000 members who are able to share experiences.

Illustrated with beautiful photographs, during the two hour talk, I went on to deliver an overall picture on the subject of East Coast creek sailing, The vital statistics and key features of my miniature gaff cutter, Shoal Waters, including a specimen voyage from my 2017 log, a most memorable voyage, and the how-to and practicalities of keeping a boat on a drying mooring, along with the nuts and bolts of maintenance and related costs that small boat ownership entails.
  More talks are already in the pipeline and if you would like me to visit your club or group over the coming winter please make contact. Good sailing, Tony
